On Friday night, the hubby got off of work early and we had plans to meet some friends for bowling. Before bowling, hub and I stopped at a new Japanese restaurant called the Cherry Blossom which is in walking distance from our house. They did a fantastic job of redesigning the interior of what once was a hole-in-the-wall pizza joint. Here is what I had and enjoyed it thoroughly. Everything tasted fresh and fulfilling.
One ring from these fried calamari my husband ordered:
I also had a cup of miso soup while hubs enjoyed his calamari. Picture was not worth posting due to its blurriness. (I’m using my iphone for all of my pictures, so I apologize for the very unprofessional images. My b-day is coming up and I am hoping to get a camera from someone special. 😉 )
Here is my two sushi rolls both with brown rice instead of white. Added note: The calories are the same in white and brown rice. A cup of each has about 200 calories, but the brown rice provides much more nutrients which you can read about here. I ate 5 pieces of the tuna roll and 5 pieces of my california roll. In addition I had three pieces of the hubby’s philly roll.
After dinner, we met some friends for a fun filled night of bowling, darts, and pool. So tonight, I am planning on catching up on some much needed sleep. Good night ya’ll! 🙂
